Jamie Oliver’s wife Jools has revealed she is thinking about adding a sixth baby to their brood.

The couple already have five children together - daughters Poppy, 17, Daisy, 16, and Petal, 10, and sons Buddy, nine, and River, three.

But Jools, 44, has admitted she isn’t sure she is finished and is hankering after just “one more” baby.

She told The Red Room podcast: “I just want to keep going until I can't keep going.

“I will probably think about stopping wanting another baby when I am about 47.

“Jamie says, 'You can't put an age on it because you keep on talking about it' but just one more for River.”

She added: “I don’t want to feel like this, I want to just stop bugging Jamie.

“But I feel like I don't know. I think one more.”

TV chef Jamie has previously said he has tried to suggest that he and Jools are done with having babies - but that his wife couldn’t be convinced.

Speaking with Jessie Ware on her Table Manners podcast last year, he shared: "I’ve tried to say no more, but it doesn’t go down very well.”

"Jools is a real family-maker and such an incredible mum,” he said.

“I think she knows this is the last window of opportunity."

Jamie and Jools began dating as teenagers before tying the knot in 2000 in Rickling, Essex when they were both 25 years old.
